Obama-Edwards 2008-????

By Michael J.W. Stickings

No, not that Edwards. And, no, not as a running mate. But it's a potentially significant partnership nontheless. Here's what Obama said in Raleigh today about health-care reform:

By the way, I'm going to be partnering with Elizabeth Edwards, we're going to be figuring all this out.

As TPM's Greg Sargent notes, that wasn't in Obama's prepared remarks. And it's an intriguing development, given Elizabeth's past criticism of Obama's health-care reform plan. Sargent: "For an idea of just how effective Elizabeth Edwards might be as a surrogate on health care for Obama and against McCain, take a look at this take-down by Elizabeth of McCain's plan." Indeed. She's extremely impressive.

And I think she's be a fantastic addition to the Obama campaign.
